The Note (poem)

I got your note and this is my reply

I truly never thought we’d come to this

To leave it to mere words to say goodbye

Mere words when needed often we’d dismiss

-

Where were these words when tears began to fall

Or in those times when silence ruled the day

I can’t recall the need for words at all

As something far more grander slipped away

-

How fitting it’s all ending with a note

When words on paper ushered in our start

What dreams were shared amidst those words we wrote

When did it end when did it fall apart

-

And then this note which says that we are through

A note that sadly ended I love you

Music only

Martin, this is sad, but beautiful at the same time. It's not uncommon to learn of failed love through a letter or note. Sometimes it's too difficult to come face to face with the love whose heart is being broken.
